The Loop H-Bar has the same hand, stem and brake lever position as my original H-Bar but the cross bar sweeps forward to allow the levers to go behind the cross bar instead of in front. This gives longer uninterrupted hand positions and allows shifters to fit on the rearward extensions. The continuous front loop of the bar enhances stiffness and is good for additional aero hand positions and mounting bags, lights, GPS devices etc. Comfort and power and an impressive weight. With the levers in the optimum position the rider is superbly placed for fast riding while still enjoying all the hand positions available. The rearward extensions allow extra leverage and a wider hand position – be it for comfort or power. Aluminum and titanium tubing is tapered and butted to add strength and save weight.
